Three years on from the release of the exquisite Luminous, Essex’s finest indie/gaze post-punk revivalists The Horrors have announced its follow-up, V.

Produced by Paul Epworth, the album will be released in September and followed by a string of UK and Irish dates, including Belfast’s Mandela Hall on October 16 and Dublin’s Tivoli on October 17.

With the band exploring new sonic territory on the release, keyboardist Tom Cowan said, Tom Cowan continues: “It’s natural, if you do see yourself as an artist, to progress and not play it safe. Bowie pre-empted the modern condition of not being able to stay in one place for very long, and I get frustrated with bands who stay still. Because then it does become a career.”

Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday (June 30th) at 9am, priced £19.50 and €24 respectively.
